Sustainability in the sanitary industryOur contribution

As a globally active group specializing in sanitary technology, Geberit aims to play a leading role in the transformation towards a sustainable sanitary industry. Our innovative, high-quality, and durable sanitary products have a positive impact on the industry, society, and environment.

For more than 30 years, we have been consistently pursuing our strategy in line with sustainability considerations along the entire product life cycle. This commitment is an important reason for the company's long-term success. We believe that the greatest contribution we can make to a circular economy is to keep setting new standards for product quality and durability.

Geberit products are typically used for decades. It is not uncommon for their service life to exceed 50 years, for example in the case of plastic discharge pipes. In addition, Geberit guarantees the spare parts availability of 50 years for all replaceable mechanical parts of the concealed cistern and actuator plate. Only some specific functionalities of electronic products (for example our hygiene flush unit) are excluded. The spare parts availability of 25 years for a significant part of the range makes an important contribution to the service life of our products. As does our commitment to the backwards compatibility of new products. In this way, we make it easier for our construction partners to fulfill the often extensive catalog of requirements for certified, sustainable construction projects.

A binding sustainability strategy

More than 30 years ago, Geberit drew up its first environmental strategy and implemented specific measures. Over the years, this strategy was gradually expanded into a comprehensive sustainability strategy. It is based on the UN Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Geberit's focus is on goals 6, “Clean Water and Sanitation“, and 11, “Sustainable Cities and Communities“, in particular. In addition, significant contributions are made to “Decent Work and Economic Growth“ (goal no. 8) and “Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure“ (goal no. 9).
